HOW DO I SET UP MY EMAIL ADDRESS AS AN IMAP-ACCOUNT ON ANDROID?

The following guide will show you how to set up your email address as an IMAP-account on your Android device.
We've used a Samsung device, but you should be able to follow along using others as well.

Throughout this guide we will use 'yourdomain.tld' as a replacement for your actual domain. 'youremail@yourdomain.tld' is used as a replacement for your actual e-mail address.
